Ashar wins 1st leg of UP Open Handicap Snooker Tournament
IN FINAL HE BEAT TARAN AGARWAL 4-1
Today the 1st Handicap Snooker Tournament of 2019 came to an end.
The event was organized by Lucknow Cue Sports Association at The
Green Baize in Lucknow where the final turned out to be a whimper
rather than a bang.
Much was anticipated from the final especially when two of the
fastest, aggressive and the most accurate players in city, Ashar
Abrar and Taran Agarwal faced off each other, but Ashar on the day
was stronger and more determined for Taran.
Ashar’s dynamite combination of break making and safety play left
Taran so flabbergasted that he lost all his concentration and was
not able to control his nerves. Even though Taran did get many
opportunities but he was not able to convert any one of them to a
massive break. Ashar, on the other side pounce on every chance and
kept the score board ticking.
In the first frame Taran got a chance of clearance on all available
colours but missed the simple yellow and also left all open for
Asher to clear and win the frame 62-45.
In the second frame Taran required 2 snookers on last red for which
he managed to lay snooker that Ashar couldn’t break leaving free
ball to Taran. Though Taran come into the game but once again failed
to perform under pressure and lost frames over frame. On the
other-side Ashar was constantly moving towards the win and nowhere
allowed Taram to come into game again and won the match 4-1.
In the prize distribution ceremony, the UPBSA Secretary, Tanuj Kohli
gave away the prizes and trophies with a thank you note to all
associated with the championship.
